Heart attack: This could be a sign if an old heart attack. If it was the computer reading, it may not be correct. Comparison with an old ECG is helpful. Depending on the type of hernia operation ( there are many), the surgeon and anesthesiologist will decide to proceed or postpone. They should discuss the risks with you as well. ...Read more

Is there a question: here?? Sounds like you should know something about EKG's which I learned as an INTERN at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston from Dr Joseph Reisman a prominent ELECTROCARDIOGRAPHER....and Cardiologist. The ELG is just a bunch of SQUIGGLES on a piece of graph paper and is by ITSELF MEANINGLESS without the CLINICAL SITUATION of the patient!!!!

Abnormal ECG sinus bradycardia and septal infarct age undetermined?

Depends: Sinus bradycardia can be normal in a fit individual. Septal infarct age undetermined may also be a normal variant, but also possibly indicate previous injury to the heart. You might want to consider getting further evaluation, such as a stress treadmill ECG test. Depending on various associated healthy issues, this might need to be combined with imaging (nuclear or ultrasonography). ...Read more

You are young, there fore it is not very likely unless you smoke, have family history of coronary heart disease at relatively young age, have high cholesterol. Check with your doctor whether your Levothyroxine dose is not high for you. ...Read more

False positive test: False positive nuclear stress test is common in the inferior region due to attenuation artifact brought by the diaphragm. This can be reduced by certain protocols but not totally eliminated.in the absence of any collaborative finding such as wall motion abnormality, it is of doubtful significance ...Read more
